There are also three museums (Old Masters Picture Gallery, the Dresden Porcelain Collection, Royal Cabinet of Mathematical and Physical Instruments) that you can visit for 10 Euro. The Palace was rebuilt after being destroyed in... More

Not only are there three museums here but the grounds are beautiful also. It would be easy to spend a whole day her but since Dresden has so many museums, I am about worn out. Probably should have come here first. I really enjoyed coming outside and enjoying the beauty of the grounds.

Didn't get to visit the art gallery inside, but the walk around was alright. Good place for photos and/or lunch.

For 10€ per person, you can buy a ticket which covers entrance fees for the Dresden Porcelain Museum, Old Masters Picture Gallery and Mathematisch and Psysikalischer. You can spend hours here. All 3 museums have fantastic collections. The park and architecture of... More

You have to go to the basement to get tickets. Take your time to visit the garden and the gallery with many collections of paintings in this museum.

What amazing architecture! If you want German culture, here it is. As I understand, this is one of the only culturally-significant structures to survive the bombing of Dresden in WWII.

This is the sight to see in Dresden. For me the carillion made from Dresden china bells was a highlight but it only plays once every four hours. The Crown Gate is a magnificent piece of architecture - a "must see" in Dresden.
